2009 Coufran, Haut-Médoc
Soft and fruity with milk chocolate. Full and round textured. Goes on for a minute or two. Excellent for the vintage. Better than I remember. And better in 2014, but why wait?
Firm tannins, but also ripe, sweet fruits, with a fine balance. While the wine is on the light, fresh side, it does have a good, final structure.
Pretty nose, with crushed berries, mineral and flowers. Medium-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a fruity finish. Yummy barrel sample. (Web-2010)
½* Ripe and soft on the palate. Full-flavored with a lush finish. Value. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Founder & Bordeaux Buyer)
